HR: Becoming a Strategic Partner

We often say that people are our most valuable asset! If that is true, then why isn't HR — which is considered the traditional keeper of the people — not considered a strategic partner? We will look at enhancing HR's credibility to earn a seat at the table to become a strategic partner.

Key Objectives

  1. How to increase or enhance HR's credibility and become more strategically focused on our organizations;
  2. To envision this and put it into practice;
  3. Realize that people and talent issues are the most important issues in any organization.
